Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things ~ Robert Brault

Things have been a bit nutty around these parts lately. The knitting has slowed down a bit, but the socks are making progress.


I don’t know if I’ve ever mentioned it but Sadie is a rather dorky dog. That’s why I’m especially fond of this nearly regal picture of her.


Finally, a recent sunset.

The red sock blank is making lovely socks. They are flying off the needles. I turned the heels Saturday night.


Over the weekend Milo participated in the Sleeping Olympics.




One year ago today I spotted this at the Humane Society.

Luka at the shelter

I cannot believe it’s been a year already. I’ve had so much fun getting to know Luka.


Well, most of it has been fun. That day last summer when I arrived home from work and discovered he’d shredded 15 rolls of toilet paper and 5 rolls of paper towels was definitely not fun (at least not for me).

Happy anniversary, buddy.


Life isn’t about finding yourself, it’s about creating yourself. ~ Unknown

Once upon a time this was a knitting blog. Today I am (briefly) returning to my roots.

Many moons ago I dyed this sock blank:

a different kind of rainbow

I finally finished the socks on Saturday night:


I have to admit that I didn’t really like the socks when I finished them. They didn’t turn out at all how I expected. However, I wore them all day Sunday and we made peace.


I probably won’t ever love them, but I do like them. And they’re a perfect fit.

More details can be found on their Ravelry page.

On Sunday I dyed the blank for the my next pair of socks:

I cannot wait to knit these. It’s tough to see in the picture, but it’s a subtle tonal effect that I think will make gorgeous socks.

Finally, a picture of Milo. I’m not sure how this position was comfortable, but he was sound asleep.
